WHAT DO LOCAL COUNCILS DO?

Your parish serves your local community. Our work falls into three main categories:

  • Delivery of services
  • Improve quality of life for residents
  • Give communities a democratic voice

BECOMING A PARISH COUNCILLOR

As a parish councillor you can become a voice for your community and make a real change. Councillors are community leaders and represent the interests of the communities they serve. Local councillors have three main responsibilities:

  • Decision-making
  • Monitoring
  • Getting involved locally

GETTING ELECTED

To stand for election to a parish council you must both:

  • Be a UK or Commonwealth citizen; or be a citizen of the Republic of Ireland; or be a citizen of another Member State of the European Union
  • Be at least 18 years old

AND MEET AT LEAST ONE OF THE FOLLOWING 4 CRITERIA:

  • Be an elector of the parish council; or
  • In the past 12 months occupied land or other premises in the area the parish council serves (as owner or tenant); or
  • Work in the area parish council serves (as your principal or only place of work); or
  • Live within three miles of the parish council boundary
